SNAPDRAGON GIANT MIX A RAINBOW OF COLOURS! TALL STEMS! EYE CATCHING BEAUTY! $1.70

A RAINBOW OF STUNNING COLOURS ON GIANT FLOWERS, TALL WITH AN UPRIGHT HABIT, GREAT AS CUT FLOWERS FOR THE HOUSE! BEES AND BUTTERFLIES LOVE THEM AND SO DO LITTLE KIDS AND BIG KIDS TOO, GRASP THEM JUST SO AND THEY OPEN AND CLOSE THEIR MOUTHS TO SHOW THEIR “TEETH” INSIDE! WHEN THE SEED PODS DRY THEY LOOK LIKE SKULLS! THEY LAST FOR AGES IN THE GARDEN AND COME AGAIN EVERY YEAR!

Lovely and innocent in the growing season then turning dark and mysterious at seed time (their empty seed pods look like skeleton skulls!)

They grow to about 50cms to 70cms in height and can be cut for the house as well as making an astounding display in the garden! They are in vivid mixed colours and love to grow in ordinary soils with good sunshine and medium water needs.

Sow direct into the soil they are to grow in or put them in planters! One or two tucked into a pot of petunias will really give some style to your display!

You might not know but ALL seed pods on ALL snapdragons will turn into a skull shape but can be delicate and you might miss it – so keep a careful watch once they finish, you can even put paper bags on the pods to keep them protected and to collect the seed, open the bag once you hear them rattle as the seeds will be in the bottom of the bag and the skulls in the top!

SEEDS ARE MIXED COLOURS, SMALL SIZED, MIX WITH FINE GRAINS OF SAND IF NEEDED TO AID DISTRIBUTION OF SEEDS
